PhD Candidate and Graduate Research Assisstant in Computer Science at Georgia Institute of Technology

For every 15 minutes
I'm a PhD candidate in Computer Science at Georgia Institute of Technology with a minor in Machine Learning. The Georgia Tech CS program is ranked 7th nationally, among all the CS graduate schools, according to the USNews. Being such a competitive school, entails being knowledgable, too. In the lab that I do research, we implement our algorithmic prototypes and ideas using variety of programming languages, especially when the library that you are interested in is available only in one language! As such, I'm an expert in MATLAB, Python, C++/C, Java and Perl (but I also know some more, e.g. scala, PhP or even Lua ! :D) If you are interested to know about my research, I'm doing Deep Learning (https://www.technologyreview.com/s/513696/deep-learning), and I'm very happy about my research but brings me here is the joy of sharing my programming expertise with those who have a passion for learning the art of programming. I still remember the moments that I managed to run my first and simplest program using the Pascal programming language, back in 20 years ago, and I'm willing to pass such a feeling to you if you like learning. I think programming is the easiest and coolest thing that everyone can do. I think that an effective teacher is the one who has mastered the art of formulating complex programming subjects into easily understandable problems so that everyone can enjoy programming. Well, having said that, the positive intention by itself is not enough, you need to know how to do that in practice and that is not acquired except through experience. Aside from my first role as a programmer, I consider myself a pretty experienced teacher as well. I have 5 years of experience in teaching at Georgia Tech as a teaching assistant, in multiple courses such as Machine Learning, Computer Science and Ethics, Biomedical Health Informatics, Problem Based Learning, Computational Problem Solving for Scientists and Engineers, all of which require a significant amount of expertise in programming and teaching. I have also taught ME1311 (MATLAB for engineers with applications), at Kennesaw State University, as a lecturer. In summary, I can teach the followings comfortably: 1. Python 2. MATLAB 3. Java 4. C++/C 5. Discrete Math 6. Graph Theory

C++/C is definitely the mother of all programming languages, that aside, being close to the hardware, if I decide to write a program which runs fast, I may use it.
- 2 years experience
Tensorflow is a Python library open sourced and supported by research groups in google (such as google brain, deepmind, etc.) It's now becoming a full-fledged deep learning library.
- 2 years experience
Torch is a Deapp learing library supported by facebook which uses Lua language.
- 3 years experience
I have a lot of experience working with Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure cloud services. We use these routinely to run large scale analysis, especially for deploying GPU processors to make our deep learning models run faster. I have written several grant proposals to get resources from these too, including a $50K grant from Microsoft Azure Big Data Hub which was funded just recently.
Could've been better

He very patient and helpful. He helped me to better understand the material I was struggling with as well as helping me to find the errors in my code. I appreciated his help! Hameed was very knowledgable and kind. I highly recommend him to anyone struggling with programming.

A literal coding king

I can't be thankful enough for Hameed's help. He took the time to understand everything in my code. He understood the goal of my program fast and he knew how to give suggestions right off the bat. I will continue requesting Hameed for my future mentoring in Python programs.

Gosh, I don't know what to say. Talking to someone with formal training feels... so different. You get the in's and out's clearly. It took us a few rounds of miscommunication, but the experience is nothing like before: only if both sides know their points well can they argue, and such an argument is the most beneficial of all. All problem solved, admittedly not in an instant, but truly once and for all!

It was my first time using this website and had a great first time experience. 1. He spent extra time and effort for helping me. I've never seen this much passionate person. Of course, I didn't forget the gratitude. 2. Needless to say, he is an expert to teach me how my code is wrong. And I was able to understand clear as crystal! 3. If you have issues with Python and/or tensorflow, Hamid is the person who might save your project.
